Install driver on both x86 and x64

Hi,

I have a single Basic MSI project which create many setup.exe files for both x86 and x64 platforms. This works fine, except about the driver installation.

I have both x86 and x64 drivers in two separates components which share the same .INF, but have their own .SYS files. Installshield can install device drivers properly, but the "Device driver machine architecture" property which specify if the driver targets x86 or x64 machines is Global. That causes me pain since I would like to set it to x86 for the components holding my x86 driver and x64 for the x64 driver components..

Any idea how to work around this ? I'm currently installing-deinstalling my x64 driver with DPINST.EXE, which does not work very well either.

Thanks

Hum... I guess my question is too tricky to get an answer here ? I admit this is not an easy one, but someone must have at least a small tip!
